There was a fuschia bud lying on the  ground in the garden on the art ministry garden the other day so it inspired me to write this little poem….you see if you take a flower you can press it between the leaves of a book and it can be used to make a picture and then it will last forever…like true love…

This beautiful fuchsia Lies here

On the path

It’s colours near faded

But they shine

Against the concrete

Don’t tread on it

Take it

In your hands

And treasure it

A broken bud

That can be nurtured

And pressed

Between leaves

To make a picture


Not in bloom

But still there

Of what it could have been

Had it stayed

On the stem still living

It will stay for ever

Pressed and dried

Rather than wilt and die

Take it your hand

Hold it forever

In your heart…

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
